Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 June 2016

Came upon this restaurant after making a wrong turn. Restaurant is in an old house. We weren't sure what to expect but after seeing a number of cars in the parking lot, we decided to give it a try. Authentic Mexican food, ample portions and very reasonable prices. Appears to be a family run business and a favorite among the locals. My fajitas were good, well seasoned and flavorful. The sides of rice, refried
beans and guacamole salad were tasty as well. My husband had tamales and chile rellenos which he said were as good if not better than what we get in Mexican restaurants in our area. Service was a bit slow but they were busy for a Wednesday night. Definitely no complaints about the price, $23.00 plus tax and tip for dinner for two with a glass of Sangria. We both had enough food to take home for another meal.

The service here was not good. The food was average at best. The burrito that I had was not very good. The ground beef was like it was out of a can or something. The place has no room inside. You sit with your back against other chairs. You can't even leave your seat. The mens restroom is behind the restaurant in a old building. Just avoid this place and go to ocala

What a great little surprise to find Don Pepe.
You have to go down Penn. Ave a good bit and off to the left, and there you'll find what appears to be an old converted house.
The benches could be a bit more comfortable, but hey, you're there for the food, not to take a nap. Surprisingly good for a town the size of Dunnellon and with no real competition around.

Best Mexican food in the ocala area. Very friendly service. The chips and salsa are excellent. I love the seasoning on the chicken fajitas.
